Projection Update

CPC - 120
Lib - 111
BQ - 44
NDP - 33

Think the Tories will sweep Calgary?
Not so fast!
Trivia time. What riding in the province did the Liberals do best in? Well thats Edmonton Centre. Which riding did they do second best in? If you said Calgary West your right.

Whats that you say, the Liberals doing well in Calgary? Its true. The Alberta Liberals won 5 seats in the city, and 4 everywhere else. The new Alberta Liberal leader is from Calgary. Part of his riding is in Calgary West. In fact, part of 4 of those Liberal Calgary ridings. In short, the idea that the Liberals could win here is not as crazy as one might think at first glance.

While I still have the Tories on top, it is not as big of a margin as you'd think. There is still a chance that the Liberals could steal this riding away, and no, I'm not joking.
